Rooms and Facilities




Our Rooms


Our Victorian Rooms are all located in the historical Albert House building, a stately double story homestead built in 1843. These rooms have the general milieu of the memorable Victorian era, and guests will note antique furniture, period paintings and period fireplaces among the many modern items. Our Garden Rooms which are set away from the original homestead also in a building dating from the 1840’s and since been modernized. The architecture has been adapted to fit in well with the 1843 homestead building. Five of our seven en suite rooms have doors leading directly to our spacious gardens, and this has proved a popular attraction to our many guests. All of the rooms have television with DSTV.

We especially pride ourselves on our bedding, and our quality beds, mattresses and pillows are complemented by the best Percale linen. Uncompromising luxury for sleep aficionados! To make your stay really comfortable in the harsh Karoo winters, electric blankets and heaters are also provided.

Our gardens and trees


When Albert House was built in 1843 on its large 4000 square metre plot, a garden was laid out in typical Victorian fashion and trees planted, some of them still flourishing to this day! The size of the Albert House trees tell a story of their own, and one of the most prominent is a wild olive planted the same year the house was built, making it over 160 years old! The two pear trees are over 120 years old, yet still produce fruit every year! The Banksia climbing roses were planted before 1910. A few hundred metres down the road from Albert House is the largest Ilex Oak in the world, which has often been mentioned in botanical literature.

Besides creating welcome shade and enhancing the appearance of the garden, the productive fruit trees are harvested regularly and jams and preservatives are made in the kitchen at Albert House. So remember, when you tuck into your scrumptious breakfast in the morning, those tasty jams come from the trees just outside the dining room window!

The extensive gardens, lawns and trees tend to draw one outside the rooms, and we have noted how many guests enjoy sitting outside in this botanical splendour rather than in their rooms!
